This exceptional book contains hundreds of stories of Paramhansa Yogananda and two of his closest Rajarshi Janakananda (James J. Lynn, a prominent businessman) and Durga Mata (Florina Darling, who came to Yogananda during his early years in America). Durga moved to Mt. Washington, Yogananda’s headquarters in Los Angeles, in December 1929. Sharing with readers her twenty-two years of life with her Guru, she tells of activities at Mr. Washington during the Depression; of Yogananda’s lecture campaigns across the U.S.; of various interactions between the Master and his disciples; of Yogananda’s visions, healings, miracles, and more. In 1936, the Master asked Durga to move to his hermitage in Encinitas to assist Rajarshi Janakananda, Yogananda’s most highly advanced disciple. For many years, Durga served Rajarshi on almost a daily basis, and from these close interactions she paints a rare portrait of this great saint and his deep meditations, his personal habits, and his contacts with Yogananda. Finally, in this book Durga shares her own life and devotion to her Guru. Coming to Yogananda as a young woman, she remained a devoted disciple until her death in 1993. Her book—when combined with writings shared by other disciples such as Swami Kriyananda—helps to present a well-rounded picture of what life was like with the great Master and world teacher, Paramhansa Yogananda.

This book is lovingly dedicated to our Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda, with a silent prayer that it bring about a new awakening of his teachings, in the hearts and minds of disciples everywhere, a prayer that has grown with ever greater love and intensity within the heart of Sri Durga Mata over the more than 65 years of service to her Guru and to his principal disciple, Rajasi Janakananda.

This book is also dedicated to our Beloved Sri Durga Mata by we, her children, who have for years lovingly known her simply as "Ma." For the last 35 years other more than 65 years of service, she has devoted her life to extensive personal counselling and leading group meditations and classes on the teachings of Paramhansa Yoganandaji and Patanjali.

About the Author

Sri Durga Mata has given over 65 years of her life in loving service and obedience to her Guru. It is with humbleness and gratitude, we her children are taking this opportunity, on the 100th anniversary of Paramhansa Yoganandaji's birth, to introduce her book to disciples everywhere. We sincerely hope you the reader will receive inspiration, guidance, and a large measure of the spiritual joy we received in printing it. The following is a spiritual journey with Durga Ma, her Guru, and his chief disciple, Rajasi Janakananda.

Durga Ma's life did not end when Master and Rajasi left this world, though she thought it would. Instead, her life took a new turn and over the next 35 years she became mother, counsellor, friend, psychologist, and confidante, for Masters many disciples. For many years her phone was busy night and day, for those who needed physical, mental, and spiritual guidance. She has never turned away a sincere appeal for help, regardless of the persons race, religion, or gender. Her love is always there, her forgiveness is always there, all we have to do is ask. She would often say, "It doesn't matter how many times you fall, as long as you pick yourself up and start again."

Rajasi is the name used throughout this text in this most familiar form for James J. Lynn, the chief disciple of Paramhansa Yogananda. When Paramhansaji gave Rajasi his vows, he originally bestowed the title of Rajarsi Janakananda, which is used by Self-Realization Fellowship. Right after this naming, Paramhansaji discovered the fine difference between the meanings of Rajasi and Rajarsi, and renamed him Rajasi Janakananda. Sri Durga Mata was with Master when he explained the difference between the two names and wrote down the Master's words: "Rajarsi means 'Royal Saint', but without the 'r' means 'King of the Saints,' which makes a big difference to me for that is what I feel he is." Sri Durga Mata said that some Indians criticize the spelling of Rajasi without the 'r', but that is the way Master wanted it.

Master called Sri Durga Mata, "Ma Durga," for the first time when he saw her in the International Headquarters in 1929 after she moved to Mount Washington. They had met for the first time two years earlier in Michigan, her home state. He also sometimes referred to her by the nickname, "Duj".
